“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”

Individual Counseling

Giving children, adolescents, and adults the emotional tools to navigate themselves, their relationships, and their outside worlds is an empowering gift. The resilience that comes with these skills equips them with the knowledge of how to handle all of life’s emotions.

Co-Parenting Counseling

Recommended for mild to moderate parental conflict, co-parenting counseling is a child-focused and confidential process that provides the opportunity for parents to understand and learn basic principles on how to create a new family paradigm that is healthy and positive for the entire family.

Parent Coordination Services

Recommended for high parental conflict, parent coordination services aim to shield children from parental conflict and loyalty binds. This service reduces stress on both parents and children to minimize litigation and assists children in adjusting to their two homes.

Parallel Parenting

Recommended for high-conflict families and usually not long-term, parallel parenting provides an opportunity for co-parenting to occur without engaging with one another in order to shield the children from conflict. 

Reunification Counseling

Reunification counseling is for parents and their children who have been reintroduced after a period of separation.
